I came across this video today which I wanted to share with you all. Im not sure about you but I find immense comfort in the presence of animals when I am stressed. This video shows a service dog calming a woman who has Asperger’s Syndrome. The woman in the video has self injurious behavior and this dog has been trained to intervene. The dog was adopted from a rescue center at the age of one and now knows how to stop the woman from hurting herself by using his paws and body to block her hands from her head.
Would love to hear from you about your experiences of the soothing effects of animals please leave us a comment below
